Nottingham Forest begin negotiations for Castellanos

Nottingham Forest will be looking to the transfer window to bolster their squad ahead of their long awaited return to the Premier League next season, and now a new update has emerged on a potential transfer target.

What’s the latest?

According to journalist Germán García Grova (via TNT Sports), Nottingham Forest have begun negotiations to sign New York City’s Valentin Castellanos.

As per the report, the newly-promoted club can reach an agreement for the player with Forest looking for reinforcements to remain in the Premier League.

Cooper’s Tevez

There is no doubt that Steve Cooper will be looking for options to add depth and strength to his team ahead of their season in the Premier League, as the club will be desperate to stay in the top flight for many years to come following a 23-year absence.

Castellanos has been proving himself to be a prolific goal-scorer and attacking threat in the MLS winning the golden boot by scoring 22 goals during the 2021 season, which is more goals scored than any of the current Nottingham Forest players this season with Brennan Johnson finishing on 19.

Should Forest sign Castellanos?





However, goal-scoring isn’t the only prolific attribute that the £12.8m dynamo, who was hailed “exceptional” by Conor McGilligan, has displayed over his last full season in the American top-tier.

The Argentine also contributed eight assists, created eight big chances, made 1.1 key passes, won 6.7 duels and took 4.1 shots on average per game, proving that he is a solid attacking threat on all fronts and not afraid to get stuck into challenges due to his high numbers of duels won in-game.

Castellanos could even be Cooper’s very own Tevez as the 23-year-old has drawn comparisons to the former Manchester City striker due to his powerful and pacey approach to his game, which could have a massive influence on Forest’s chances of remaining in the Premier League at the end of next season.

The Forest manager will be looking for ways to add more to his attacking third as Keinan Davis who currently occupies the number nine shirt will be returning to Aston Villa at the end of this month when his loan spell expires, so there is definitely a position Castellanos can slot into perfectly if the club can secure the signing.
